Fontsainte Gris de Gris (750ml)
Domaine de Fontsainte is in the heart of the Corbières’ celebrated ‘Golden Crescent’ – one of the appellation’s most beautiful and beneficent terroirs. Fontsainte’s intensely sunny, gently sloping, south south-east facing vineyards shelter from cold north-east winds on the flank of a 500-hectare pinewood massif (right). The domain dominates the landscape around the hamlet of Boutenac, enjoying panoramic views. Fontsainte’s vineyards, just 95m in altitude, benefit from a pristine environment (far from industrial or urban developments) plus alternating Mediterranean and oceanic influences.
70% Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir; 10% Mourvèdre; 10% Carignan; 10% Cinsault. Expressive nose; the wine immediately gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries. The palate is fresh and persistent.
